For the second year INSEAD, the multi-campus international business school, has taken the number one spot, after claiming it for the first time last year.

“The ranking is based on surveys of the business schools and their graduates of 2013. MBAs are assessed according to the career progression of alumni, the school’s idea generation and the diversity of students and faculty,” FT said.

The ranking uses data collected from the schools and the 9,000 alumni who completed a full-time MBA at them in 2013 - — a response rate of 41%, it further said.
